Default In canada, went to clarkdale.

Yeah, we went for a drive. we both heard the sound. the dealer wouldn't authorize the turbo change anymore. they tell me to wait for the sound to get lounder. I'm going to another dealer though.

Default fix the leak. not the turbo's...if the car still has a leak , new turbo's aren't going to help

but yes, an air leak could cause strange MAF readings/ DTC's

Default The problem is that the dealer couldn't determine the problem. I think they've done a pressure test.

if they can't determine the problem, it's hard to fix it.

Default Yes, i'm bringing it to another dealer to diagnose the problem.

Besides the dealer, who would be able to figure out the problem and fix it? any ideas?
